In the beginning of the chapter, two unknown characters are discussing Ender’s future. “He’s too malleable. Too willing to submerge himself in someone else’s will.” “Not if the other person is his enemy.” “So what do we do? Surround him with enemies all the time?” (Card, page 1) This is important because it foreshadows Ender’s future and the rest of the book. It shows that Ender is going to have a difficult life. Another compelling quote is introduced after Ender knocks Stilson to the ground. “Ender, however, was trying to figure out a way to forestall vengeance. To keep them from taking him in a pack tomorrow. I have to win this now, and for all time, or I’ll fight it every day and it will get worse and worse.” (Card, page 7) This led to Ender
Ender has caused all of this pain, and suffering. He feels all of that. But he did it for the right reasons. He was always one step ahead of the game, but he didn’t realize he was being used. That guilt he felt at the end, the actions he took during, and the prevention he tried before all are the signature marks of a good person put under unbearable stress and in situations that no 10 year old should have to deal with.
The Manipulation of Ender The book, Ender’s Game, is a book full of interesting events. A six year old boy named Ender Wiggin goes to Battle School, where he is continually tested and trained to become an elite commander. He succeeds at Battle School and eventually goes to Command School, where he leads his army to victory over the bugger troops. Because of this, the world is safe from being destroyed by the buggers. Even though Ender and his fleet are successful in defeating the buggers, Ender’s intelligence and skill is taken advantage of throughout the book.
Chapter14 “Enders Teacher” Chapter Summary In this chapter Ender arrives at the Command School. Where he meets his new teacher Mazor Rackham. Mazor tells Ender how we went away for a while so he can be alive to teach the commander for the Third Invasion. Ender begins training with the simulations and then begins training to command a whole fleet.
This lessens the scope of how much the International Fleet has been lying to Ender, leading to the reveal being less dramatic. The movie also completely erases the Locke and Demosthenes subplot, removes the epilogue of Ender moving to a colony with Valentine, and then replaces it with Ender finding the queen bugger’s egg on the same planet as the Command School and leaving to find a safe home for it. This also gets rid of the parallel between Ender and Peter at the end of the book, where it’s pointed out that in spite of Peter being portrayed as exceedingly cruel, he prevents the war on Earth which saves millions of lives. Ender kills billions of buggers in the Third Invasion, almost wiping out their race completely, despite being described as gentle and not wanting to hurt anyone. The movie’s tendency to cut anything not deemed an important event also makes it seem that Ender is unaffected by most of the events that occur.
Innumerable volumes of people portray power as one’s capacity to exhibit their potency; their unquenchable thirst for the dominion over all. Formidable and influential flawlessly depicts the being this definition conveys, a being considerably similar to Ender Wiggin. To the lionizing eyes of Earth, he is a child deity who possessed power abundant enough to exterminate an entire extraterrestrial race, but in truth, he is a boy, rupturing from his plethora of errors. In Ender’s Game, Orson Scott Card
Sometimes people experience different feelings or different emotions throughout their lifetime. But there is one emotion of them all that people want to avoid which is called fear. Fear can cause people to act dangerously and differently, in which Orson Scott Card clearly expresses this in his science fiction novel Ender’s Game. The novel reveals how fear can influence a society by forcing people to give up their basic rights and exploit others.
Ender knows what has to be done in order to prevent further, possibly fatal, attacks and demonstrates that he is willing to attack on the helpless to do so. (add more?) good Chapter 2. “It was not a question of winning… here in their flat, the game would start mean, and the bugger couldn’t just go empty and quit the way buggers did in the real wars. The bugger
Calculating Judgments For someone so young, Ender is exceptionally calculating. In almost the very beginning of the novel, the author shows Ender being bullied by Stilson and his gang. Ender realizes that he must thoroughly beat Stilson so the rest of the gang wouldn’t pick on Ender ever
Colonel Graff is a prominent manipulator of Ender. He continually isolates Ender and makes sure that he knows he is different. This changes Ender’s demeanor and his outlook on the situation. Ender is persistently worried about whether he is good enough, even Major Anderson sees this. The dilemma on whether this is all morally right has come up numerous times.
Scott Macarthy Mr. Werley English III 22 September 2014 The Destruction of Ender A utopia is supposed to be a perfect world, yet there are rarely any true utopias. Ender’s Game begins with a utopic society, where the government pits Earth against the nasty and evil buggers. Throughout Ender 's Game, written by Orson Scott Card, the reader follows the main protagonist, Ender, from his journey as a young boy on Earth to the hopes of being the next great commander in the fight against the buggers.
On Earth there was a bully named, Stilson. Ender found himself getting physically abused by him daily and when he finally got his opportunity, he made sure he was never bullied again. In battle school, there was a commander named, Bonzo that threatened to kill him; then, in the same scenario Ender decided to make sure that he would win the war and erase all future battles. In argument with Major Anderson, Graff states, “Ender’s not a killer. He just wins--thoroughly” (226).
Also, Enders fear of his actions, causes him to repay for them. Ender takes the position of fleet commander for humans against the Bugger army. Ender kills all the Buggers and the planet. Ender did not kill them intentionally; the simulations were actual fighters in real battles. Because of this, Enders emotions flood him and he feels regret and deep sadness.
